This paper will examine and discuss the emerging concept of the 'greening' of Personnel and Human Resource Management (HRM) by breaking down into four sections. The first section will provide definitions for Personnel Management and HRM, before establishing Key HRM Attributes that can be applied to the concepts of Environmental Management and Environmental Business Management. The second section goes on to set the scene, by showing how management and business can protect the environment. The third section expands on the previous ones by considering the relationship and integration of Personnel/HRM in Environmental Management policies and practices. This is presented as Environmental Human Resource Management (EHRM). The fourth and final section concludes by applying the Key HRM Attributes to create Key EHRM attributes, these are necessary so that the Personnel/HR Function can meet the development and implementation of Environmental Management initiatives.
